Cheers everyone for the inspirational read on the best / weakest debut follow up albums!

Came to think of another scenario where the pressure to deliver is high - the comeback albums.

Pressure high in terms of living up to past glories and at the same time, depending on ambition, trying to be somewhat relevant to the current times.

Which solid / less solid comeback albums are there and in what way did they reestablish the act?


Solid comebacks:

Iron Maiden - Brave New World. Solid & classic sounding and with perfect timing too.

Black Sabbath - 13. They did deliver, albeit everything isn't good on it.

Van Halen - A different kind of truth. They did deliver unexpectedly well, but expectations were very low.

Treat - Coup de grace. Wow!

Accept - Blood of the nations. Solid.



Less solid comebacks:

Europe - Start from the dark (very uneven but sounding wise a statement they were not stuck in the 80-ies).

Judas Priest - Angel of Retribution (3-4 good/ok tracks - not good enough)

Phenomena - nothing done recently is relevant and can compare to those two magic first two albums (of which the first one is a genre classic).


Cheers
